1.0 Reason for Policy

To provide guidance in the use of additional academic appointments for full-time academic and support staff.

2.0 Policy Statement

2.1  A full-time academic or support staff appointment with the University entails a significant commitment to the teaching, research, service and support activities of the University. For this reason the University does not encourage the appointment of full-time academic and support staff to do extra work for additional payment.
2.2 At the same time, it is recognized that the special expertise within the University may be called upon from time to time:
(a) to address a particular problem;
(b) to respond to a unique opportunity; or
(c) to meet unanticipated needs which are outside of the scope of regular duties.
2.3 The appropriate mechanism to compensate full-time academic and support staff for additional academic work is an additional appointment.
2.4 An additional appointment for a full-time academic or support staff member to perform academic work is subject to the condition that the appointment shall not interfere with satisfactory performance of the duties and responsibilities of the full-time appointment.
